From Interesting Engineering, July 14, 2021: Particle physicist Chris Quigg from Fermilab, came up with the “double simplex” representation in 2005 to help familiarize people with the known particles of nature.
From Northern Public Radio (CA), July 7, 2021: Georgia Schwender, visual arts coordinator at Fermilab discusses the inclusion of art at Fermilab with Northern Public Radio. Santa Barbara resident Mark Hirsch was named the 2021 artist for the Fermilab artist-in-residence program. In his upcoming work, he will reimagine and translate the scientific data and discoveries into digital and physical forms that communicate the complexities that are inherent to the work occurring at Fermilab.
From Sanford Lab, July 2021: Explore all the Neutrino Day events July 9-10 to talk with scientists, participate in interactive activities, experience weird science demonstrations, take virtual tours of the underground, and visit the art gallery and library—all in real time! Use the free and simple platform, Gather.town, to virtually go to Neutrino Day town where you can enjoy the events and interact with others as you would in real life.
From Silicon Republic (Ireland), July 7, 2021: Sinéad Ryan, a professor of theoretical high-energy physics at Trinity College Dublin, describes her postdoctoral research work on lattice QCD at Fermilab, the next-generation of exascale computing and the structural barriers and imbalance of diversity in the physics community.
From Sanford Lab, July 6, 2021: Celebrate Neutrino Day with SURF’s Star Chronicles on Friday, July 9, and Saturday, July 10. See the line-up of virtual events streaming through Gather.town, a free and simple platform, where attendees can explore the events and interact with others as they would in real life.
From The Black Hills Pioneer, July 2, 2021: As excavation begins for the LBNF/DUNE, planning and communication are critical to lowering huge pieces of equipment underground. Read more about how Thyssen Mining and the Sanford Underground Research Facility crews are working together to ensure everyone understands the plan and the process.
From IFL Science (United Kingdom), July 5, 2021: In the late 1960’s, Fermilab’s Felicia the ferret helped trouble shoot why the newly completed particle accelerator would not start. Thanks to the innovative thinking of a laboratory worker from Oxford, UK, he sourced Felicia to help identify the accelerator’s stall.
From How Stuff Works, July 1, 2021: Fermilab’s Muon g-2 result announcement in April 2021 introduced the world to the muon. Although the particle was first discovered in the late 1930’s, the muon made international headlines confirming previous findings that the muon behaves in a way that contradicts the Standard Model of Particle Physics.
From CNN, July 1, 2021: Fermilab’s Don Lincoln explains how the Hubble Telescope housed on the Space Shuttle Discovery has stopped operating, but the James Webb Space Telescope may soon be replacing it with a hundred times more power.
From the DOE Office of Science, June 28, 2021: Particle physics research scientists supported by the U.S. Department of Energy tackle the fundamental mysteries at universities and national labs across the country. They build state-of-the-art experiments that yield incredible discoveries and achievements including Fermilab’s Muon g-2 result, the Higgs Boson discovery, the ProtoDune demonstration and the launch of the National Quantum Initiative.
